Our bodies are something that we should be able to look at and feel happy about. There is always a range of new and exciting treatments we can indulge in to help us feel confident and happy with our own bodies, from anti-wrinkle treatments and laser hair removal to the more widely recognised facelifts. Now emerging into the beauty industry we have thread vein removal treatment.
So what are thread veins?
Thread veins, also known as spider veins, surface veins or venous flares, are small blood vessels that are dilated and visible in the dermis (the top layer of the skin). They are commonly found in the face and legs and can appear very vivid and profound in some cases. They usually appear reddish or purple in colour.
See the Mail On Sunday's report on everything you need to know about thread veins for a detailed insight into the phenomenon.
More than 80 per cent of adults have some degree of thread veins on their body, which usually start to appear during their 20s.
They are a harmless occurrence and are certainly nothing to be embarrassed about. Yet, they can cause a great deal of distress and many people are wrongly ashamed of the blemishes or consider them an eyesore.
Luckily, your local Vale Laser Clinic offers a range of discreet treatments in thread vein removal in south Wales. Although there is certainly no reason to be ashamed of thread veins, the treatments can nonetheless give you a renewed sense of confidence and ultimately give you the pride in yourself that your body deserves.
